United Kingdom, 22 February, 2007: Canon brings a refreshing sense of style to entry-level printing with the launch of the PIXMA iP1800 and PIXMA iP2500. Combining high print speeds with photo lab quality output, the printers’ distinctive cube design – finished in deep gleam black – is styled to catch the imagination of design-conscious consumers on a budget.

The PIXMA iP1800 will be available from March 2007 for £39.00 RRP inc. VAT / €59.00 RRP inc. VAT and the PIXMA iP2500 will be available from March 2007 for £49.00 RRP inc. VAT / €75.00 RRP inc. VAT.
“The distinctive design of the iP1800 and iP2500 allows PIXMA’s entry-level models to stand apart from the competition,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. “Combining stylish design, media handling and print head technology, both new PIXMAs are perfect first home photo printers.”

Designer home photo labs
Intuitive and easy-to-use, PIXMA makes home photo printing simple and fun. The iP1800 and iP2500 are coloured in deep gleam black with a reflective mirror finish; the iP2500 is offset by eye-catching sweeping silver arc-lines. Stylish yet robust, the new models make great additions to any household.
Outstanding photo lab quality at speed
Photo lab quality prints are ready in seconds. Employing Micro-Nozzles to fire ink droplets as small as 2pl onto the page, the maximum 4800x1200dpi resolution FINE print head delivers superior quality prints. Combining precision with speed, the iP1800 delivers a 10x15cm (4”x6”) borderless photograph in just 70 seconds. The new iP2500 produces a perfect photo print in just 55 seconds. Impressive document print speeds are also achieved: 20/16 ppm (mono/colour: iP1800) and 22/17 ppm (mono/colour: iP2500).
Both PIXMA entry-level models are supplied with a FINE colour cartridge and a separate black pigment ink cartridge. The combination ensures high quality printing for all types of output, including text and web documents, as well as photos. With the ChromaLife100 system, prints stored in an album last as long as 100 years.
In addition to Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint and Easy-LayoutPrint software, the new PIXMA iP2500 is supplied with an exclusive creative kit, comprising a CD-ROM and 30 sheets of Matte Photo Paper. The CD contains a range of creative projects for users to explore.
